Competitor Profile: Amazon Pay


Amazon Pay was launched in 2007 as Pay with Amazon, before being rebranded to its current name. The solution enables users to pay for purchases on third-party partner merchant websites and apps using payment methods saved on the user's Amazon profile. In the US, Amazon Pay accepts credit and debit cards from major scheme providers including Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, Diners Club, and JCB. Users can also make payments using their Amazon account balance. In India, Amazon offers the Amazon Pay Balance digital wallet, enabling customers to load funds and make purchases on Amazon.in and partner merchant websites and apps.

In July 2017, Amazon Pay introduced a new payment service called Amazon Pay Places, which allows users to make purchases from offline stores via its mobile app. This was launched in partnership with restaurant chain TGI Fridays, enabling users to browse the TGI Fridays menu and place their order directly through the app. It also ventured into in-store payments with its launch of QR code-based in-store payments. In addition, it launched Amazon Pay for small businesses, enabling SMEs to accept in-store payments through Amazon Pay.
